Back To Bethlehem - Read Chapter 3

Custom artwork by Jessica Stanley depicting a hitchhiker.

Back To Bethlehem is based on a short story I wrote in high school while living on Canada's West Coast. White Rock, Surrey and Vancouver's landscape dominate the bulk of our story. I can't actually take you to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I can only take you as far as the Peace Arch border crossing on my Canadian side. Jimmy would have to tell you the rest of the story from his side. Here's my chapter three.

Chapter two found me finding a ride. In the strangest of ways, I might add. Look at you. Jack the lad. You’ve been introduced to Jimmy Longneck. As it turns out, Jimmy’s an American hailing from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He’s a little evasive as to why he’s here. But. We’re getting along fab and making great time. We’ll need gas. And an Orange. The Chief helps us out. The beer is cold and cans and stubbies are for sissies. Jimmy probably knows best. And why argue. There’s a thirty-eight lurking around. And oh, we’re making great time.
